Re: clip to change Explorer view to focused file?
- Hi All
Shell Explorer OR Keyboard ALT+D ... CTRL+V ENTER
^!FocusApp Exploring - ^$StrDeleteRight(^$GetPath(^**)$;1)$
(swith to files plane after opening new explorer)
Or (select filename after adress bar paste)
^!Keyboard TAB TAB TAB #^$GetFileName(^**)$#
This delay should (?) work on any system, slow or fast
Adjust FocusApp to match you windows version
About Keyboard ALT+F4 to exit Explorer: yes, there are some
applications that do not exactly what you'd expect. Especially system-
based tools such as Explorer, Find etc. tend to ignore these keyboard-
strings. I think you'll habve to live with the workarounds...
- Reading the improvements on the clip I put together, I've tried Hugo's clip
with Tyrell's variable delay and it works very nicely indeed. Thanks to all
- Hi Jonathon,
If you have an older copy of Windows installed like W95 look for
Tips.txt in the Windows folder. It has a number of examples to
open Windows Explorer from an application using the format of
what Alan posted below. ...and yes, I have posted something
similar to this post a few times along with others. :-)

- Hi All:
> ^!FocusApp Exploring - ^$StrDeleteRight(^$GetPath(^**)$;1)$I hadn't really focused on this (pun intendended;-) but ...
in Folder Options - View [x] Display full path in title bar : I think this
value has to be taken into account when running these clips (right?)
It may explain why some of the examples didn't work for me - I'll have to go
back and check. I suspect a generic solution (for the non-clip programmer
(basically me!) has to either interrogate the registry or test one then the
We'd better watch out - if Bill Gates finds us cooperatively programming
like this he may put a curse on our 'puters.
